|About the Museum
The primary mission of the Bermuda Maritime Museum lies in
the preservation and exhibition of its collections of artifacts
and in the maintenance of the historic buildings and features
of the Keep, so entrusted to it by an Act of Parliament. More
generally the Museum works to explore, preserve, and interpret
Bermuda’s history and heritage.
Bermuda Maritime Museum is a non-governmental, non-profit
Bermuda Registered Charity (No. 136). The Museum’s operations,
and its full range of projects and programmes are funded by
generous private and corporate donations, in addition to admission
receipts, membership dues, and facilities rentals.
